Dumbstruck: Recommended, says Library Media Connection

In its May/June 2012 issue, Library Media Connection contained this review by Maureen Mooney, Library Media Specialist at Caroline St. School, Saratoga Springs, New York, of Dumbstruck:

“In the wake of Wimpy Kid and Amelia’s Notebooks, comes Aldo Zelnick. Oceanak has created a funny and lively hero. Aldo writes and illustrates his daily life and admits to being a little bit geeky. In Dumbstruck, part of a series, he meets a deaf student, falls in love with the new art teacher, and tries to come up with an idea for the art contest. The illustrations add to the humor. The cast of characters is a fun mix, including Aldo’s friends and his eccentric grandmother who gives Aldo advice on his art. The book’s Word Gallery contains only words that begin with “D” with Aldo’s witty explanations.”
